How does the point scoring work when you land on both DW tiles with one word or for that matter both TW with one word.
I landed on both DW with a bingo word and was just wondering how it was calculated?

For two DW squares being covered by one word, it would be doubled twice.
For two TW squares it would be tripled twice (3 x 3) so multiplied by 9.

I had the word SPEARER for 86 points. It was on 2 DW and was worth 9 points so would that be 9 doubled twice for 36 points? that would make 86 with the bingo but it was connected to TIE which should have added another 6 points. Just couldn't figure out how they scored it. To bad it's not doubled and then doubled that would be nice.

how was it connected to TIE?
which letters were on the two DW?
could you describe the play with a little more detail?

if you placed two of the letters in SPEARER on DWs, then SPEARER is doubled and then doubled again for 36 as you said, and 50 for the bingo for 86 as you also correctly figured, but without more info on the TIE connection I can't figure it out either.

Also, double check in the moves list for the scoring it gave you. could you post a screenshot of the play maybe, also showing the Moves list notation of it? I have yet to see a scoring error. but there is always a first time.

Now that I look at it I see that TIE was played after. So it was just SPEARERS

About 6 weeks ago I got to finally play DON and NOEL in the same game.

I'd post a screen shot of it but I have this small problem with accessing the ARCHIVE and <....(insert my usual rant here)...>

@ Don - Wow, that's great! I bet this will make Joe the Juggler jealous, as he has been waiting to be able to play his real first and last name for a long, long time.

NowI'm looking for an opportunity where I can hook the N in NOEL off the N in DON

LOL I have chosen lower scores just to play my kids' names: Sage and Quin. Mind you, I was playing a friend who isn't a strong player and I knew it wouldn't hurt me. I wouldn't do it in a close game.
